Virtual History Exhibit

defaulthead tilt Virtual History Exhibit

To create this Horn Book museum without walls — and no closing hours, admission fees, or gift shops — we gathered articles about our earliest years, rare artifacts from our archives, and the voices of some of the best loved writers and illustrators. Profiles of all our editors are here and so are sample editorials and scrappy correspondence. Taken all together, this is a tour through nine decades of growth and change in children’s literature.
